Man Arrested For Trying To Move Ambulance

Posted: Updated:

MT. JULIET, Tenn.- A 65-year-old driver told police he was mad because an ambulance was blocking his car, so he decided to move it.

Warren Melamed was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor, unauthorized use of a class A vehicle.

Mount Juliet Police say the two ambulance drivers were taking a patient out of a home on a stretcher at 3:30 Saturday morning, when they say, Melamed, attempted to drive the ambulance away.

"They immediately laid the patient down and asked the gentlemen to get himself out from behind the wheel," said Wilson Co. Emergency Management Director John Jewell.

Police say the Brentwood resident was angry because the ambulance was blocking him in, and he was trying to move it.

Luckily, they were able to stop Melamed from moving the ambulance.

"What's the urgency at 3, 3:30 in the morning? Why do you have to leave that quickly that you can't wait until they load this man up and get him where he needs to be," said neighbor Amanda Hamblen. "That person having that emergency right then is the only person that matters."

Online Melamed lists himself as CEO of Oral Health Management, a local chain of dentist offices. Calls Tuesday for comment weren't returned.
